MARCH 31 2023 LOCK IT UP THROW AWAY THE KEY
10% layoffs coming next week… all departments advised to reduce employee base
It is really starting to hit the fan. More work put on those who are left. I don't see this place lasting until the end of the year.
No more contract renewals for Intrado Enterprise Collaboration or IP so this means they are shutting down the business. This company will not be here at year end
So Notified let go 6-7% of its workforce. That’s fun…
RIF starting today.
This place is constantly changing, but unfortunately, for the worse. Now I feel like I’m working somewhere completely different than when I first came here. I try to remember all the changes that have happened in recent years and none of them... — read more
The other day my colleague left and I think it is a terrible loss for West because such an expert will be difficult to replace. He left because he could no longer bear the poor planning done by management. If I resign soon, the main reason will... — read more
Big changes are coming. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like these will be changes for the better. I haven’t heard any info about layoffs yet but I wouldn’t be surprised.
John sent out email saying everyone needs to go back in April with no restrictions at all but also leaving it is up to managers to get the staff back into the buildings. Well, nobody wants to go back to a building John so deal with it. People have... — read more
Did anyone else think the call was a bit flaky yesterday. No time for question and cut in half cause of other commitments. Sales seemed flat with only 1 question.
Now that Life and Safety. Notified and traditional audio conferencing are split off, what will happen to the UCaaS product? Focus is on CCPRO (cr-p) , OnSIP (self Service) , and Microsoft partnership . Are they going to dice up the Cisco customer... — read more
Clearly Apollo are selling up so who will be buying and what does that mean for those of us who are working here still?
So I really don’t understand why the need for cuts? I can't imagine how things would work if, in addition to all the people leaving, the company made even more cuts.
Is that happening?
Hire more VPs and sales engineers because they are the ones to code build and test applications.
Not long ago the manager was asking to look out for outside opportunities when asked for pay hike. Now that people took it seriously and grabbing outside opportunities the same manager is begging to not leave..! This was bound to happen.
Rumor around the water cooler is L&S and EC have been sold and about to be cut up … most employees will not move with the new buyers. You have been warned
I want to love it. I've done it long enough to be very comfortable at it. But I'm tired of worrying about having my job the next day or week all the time. I'm tired of seeing good employees being pushed out while brown-nosers who barely do anything... — read more
JS just sent an email. Going to require the jab. Even if you're WFH. Ummm, someone needs to tell him the Exec Oder from Brandon has been blocked. It's illegal. Good luck with this one.
I ran into several of my former coworkers recently, none of them work at Intrado anymore. It's only been a year since I left, so to say I was surprised would be an understatement. What's going on? Have things been getting even worse in the past 12... — read more
Too little, too late. You've scaled us back so far, we've lost so much talent, too many employees past burn out ... a committee made of the managers & execs who are making everyone miserable trying to figure out how to award and recognize employees... — read more
The company is a complete wreck. Why are you people working there still? You can get a job right now for more money, less grief, work with smart people on interesting problems, and have actual equity. Apply and interview, anything you believe that... — read more
If the market makes a turn soon, do you think there will be West layoffs? Any chatter, news or rumors?
Another round of layoffs coming next week across the UCaaS space and John announced the West Point facilities were up for sale. Intrado would become "tenants". Really, no surprises. The front line and expenses have to be cut to accommodate the new... — read more
Just wanted to try and give a glimmer of hope here. After years of being fed up, I finally decided to look around. Found a lessor position for 25% more pay at a direct competitor. There is nothing worth staying here. Job sucks, pay sucks, benefits... — read more
Best thing John ever did not having people go back to buildings until at least April 2022
Why Intrado signing long term lease for the only building they are in in Omaha when people are leaving, they are laying off people all over the world, groups are getting smaller but asked to do more work. Upper management making crazy demands of the... — read more
This company doesn't give a sh-t about you. They expect you to dedicate your life to them, work 70 hours a week and not have any objections. Employees are kept in the dark and managers are less than transparent. Managers do not have any interest in... — read more
There was no single thing that pushed me over the fence of whether I'd be staying or leaving, but more of a compilation of the greatest hits: layoffs, cr---y management, vanishing benefits, and most recently, possible RTO. I don't need that in my... — read more
With the ship going under why send us back to buildings when nobody wants to go … supposed to go back Oct but Johnny boy hasn’t sent email yet to say yes or no.
Intrado continues to show weak leadership with the hiring of new VP of Operations, Sr Director of Operations, Sr Manager of Business Strategy and promotion of toxic minded Manager level leaders in the midst of a layoff due to declining audio... — read more
Rumor is that business unit has been sold and they won’t back out like the Digital Media sale did
Trying to get out fast and have a good chunk of sick/vacation days left (mostly thanks to rollover time from the original company acquired by Intrado) Want to gtfo and actively job searching but wondering if they actually pay out the time or I... — read more
I wonder, when did it all go downhill? This was never an ideal company, but employees used to be more valued and more respected. Now this is a joke of a company where only those who have left are happy. I stayed too long and regret not leaving after... — read more
Company has no processes in place and rules change daily very disarray of a company.
